I’ve been spending some time playing with mobile technology in the last few weeks, and will write some more comprehensive notes here when I get a chance.Â Â But here’s the gist:
- Â I was in Italy on vacation, and used a Nokia N95 with the 3G carrier Tre (3). Â I used to carry a first gen Tre phone when we lived there, and it was fun to see how far they’ve come (and how far behind we are in the US).
- I used Fring with Skype on the N95, and it worked really well for contacting friends and family back in the US.Â Very cost effective and it worked great over 3G and wifi.
- My friends all were using the Nokia E71 smartphones.Â Very slick device and Nokia has made huge progress.
And then I went out yesterday and picked up the google phone from Tmobile, the g1.Â Â So far I’m just playing with it, but I like the form factor, keyboard and screen.Â I’ll see if I can rearrange my productivity tools to make a full switch, but that’s going to take some work since I have a lot (too much), Microsoft in my life.
